The Byres family is a minor aristocracy house, located in Izril.

Background Edit

The Byres Family are distantly related to the Reinahrts, making its members relatives of Magnolia Reinhart.[1] They are considered to be one of the Reinhart family’s branch houses, making them subservient to them.

Cool composure. Politeness at all times. That is the mark of a Byres. The Byres always try to be calm, no matter the circumstances, and if they don't manage that their foremost thought is to appear calm. It is important to them not to reveal their vulnerability.

The family's colors is silver, which is not just their pride but also their fortune.[2] Several large mines are located in their lands, filled with silver that they trade.[3]

However, not all of it is being traded. Every warrior of the house is equipped with silver armor.[4]

In the past the Byres family used to be richer, when there was a higher demand for quality silver. At that time they were a household name, but this changed with the disappearance of the Vampires. They used to be a scourge on Izril and had several large infestations that were wiped out over the centuries. House Byres was famous for rooting them out, with their silver being a key component of their destruction. It used to be said that if you wanted to survive a Vampire attack, you would wear a necklace of Byres silver.[5]
